So I got in trouble at work for being argumentative.

Which is true. I am and can be. I'm strong willed, opinionated, a perfectionist, etc.

I realize that being this to your boss who is, honestly, a nice guy, laid back in general, and willing to listen to VALID points about procedure laid out in a coherent way is not the smartest thing. Especially in 'public' (does a cubicle section count?).

So, he hauled me into his office and made me feel like shit about it. He had the right to. I was out of line. I can admit that.

Tho that mean part of me wanted to tell him that I didn't realize that being a customer service rep meant sacrificing you know, SERVICE, so that he can look 'good' by having a 'low number' compared to 'other department managers'. I wasn't aware we were competing against, oh, the guys who handle bugs in the god damn software. FUNNY that they have the most tickets in the company. I mean. You know. We are a software development house. Or even against the infrastructure guys who really don't have that many tickets. Cause they've done their god damn job and see, the nice thing about infrastructure is that once it's in place, it's, uh. infa. But hell, if we're competing, fine.

Note that JUST LIKE I TOLD YOU BEFORE THE WHOLE ARGUMENT STARTED. I Got all the work done. Sorry for having big numbers on your spreadsheet for less than 6 hours (on a report might I add that NOBODY GIVES A DAMN ABOUT. I have the email to prove it). Next time I'll make sure not to do my job and make you look good instead. Fuck your god damn procedures that don't make sense and get in the way of us doing our job...Let's do our JOB.

See, look at me. I'm doing it already. :(

I still barely said a word to anyone and am glad I'm home and just wanna curl up and feel better and not have to come into work and have time to eat decently and see some of the neat people in my life and ponder the death of a guy my age who I knew via gaming and read a magazine and do my dishes and buy gifts for people who deserve it and OH I DON'T know.

oh oh oh!

do i deserve a gift? 'cause, honestly, i spend *all* my money on other people and they probably don't deserve half of what i give them.. but there's not really anyone that buys things for me just 'cause they think i'd like it, much less deserve it.

i bought a digital camera for myself this weekend and now i feel like i've wasted my money, even though i've been wanting a camera and it'd be really nice to have one in time for my trip to boston. but still. why do i feel ridiculous about spending large chunks of change on myself?

your last reply made me laugh, btw. i talk to you so infrequently now that i've completely forgotten how funny you are. ;)

Re: oh oh oh!

/comfort Course you deserve a gift. A gift of A MAN. :) Sadly we're all out of stock.

I need to rebuy me a digicam. Lesigh. Wonder what sorts of spiffy things I can find. And it's not wrong to spend money on yourself when it furthers your goals of giving people memories! See. It's all in how you phrase it. ;)

As for Boston. Er. When are you going?

And thanks. It's good to know my legacy hasn't gotten worse in my old age. ;0

Re: oh oh oh!

everyone is always all out of men when i want one. ;)

i'm going to boston in a week and a half.. i'm going to go meet nice mr. boston.. i've been chatting at him for six years, give or take a month or two... unfortunately, i don't think there will be any lesighing happening, but it at least gets me out of this house for four days.

i was all sorts of mad and mean and pissy when i logged on here and now i'm not. so thanks for taking away the anger, even if you did so unwittingly. ;)

Re: oh oh oh!

*turns off the vacum cleaner of emotional baggage* What? I couldn't hear you.

Enjoy boston. Why you're only spending 4 days there and not like, 14 is beyond me. When you run, RUN HARDER. :P

Re: oh oh oh!

14 sounds like a really good number to me. I am so ready to leave.. I want fun and relaxing and no taking care of babies or being told what to do. I almost feel guilty for leaving. *almost* It's just four days, right? I'll make sure I run harder next time. ;)
